USA Network confirms that Thursday’s second season “Colony” finale will not be the show’s final episode.
The drama has been renewed for a 13-episode third season, which will premiere in 2018.
“COLONY continues to fire on all cylinders creatively, with Carlton, Ryan and our incredible cast and crew striking a deep chord around the themes of humanity, survival and family,” said NBCUniversal Cable president Chris McCumber, President. “Along with our partners Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for our heroes next season.”
“Colony” is not a strong live+same-day performer, but its viewership has been fairly consistent throughout the second season.
USA, moreover, notes that it currently ranks as cable’s #1 Thursday scripted series in live+7 viewership.
